1942 War Dept. Film Bulletin #5 Antitank Battalion; 37-mm & 57-mm Guns; Bomb Tests


Published 1942


National Archives Identifier: 24416 mislabeled as "Provisional Infantry Antitank Battalion Etc 1941" (film bulletins were not released until 1942)  Not in the greatest shape.
National Archives description "Part 1 demonstrates at Ft. Meade, Md., how an antitank battalion operates against an enemy. Guns and vehicles rush to vantage points and shoot at tanks. 
Part 2 shows tests of 37-mm and 57-mm guns firing point blank at armor at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md. 
Part 3, various bombs are dropped on 8-inch, reinforced walls in tests at Aberdeen."
